In the spring of 1944, Elsie (Eller) Boden and Mildred (Landes) Hartley thought it would be nice to hold a family gathering of the descendants of John and Ann (Overdorf) Eller. So on August 28, 1944, the first reunion of this Eller family was held on Arcadia School gounds in Arcadia, Indiana with several present. It was decided to have a reunion each year. The Second Eller reunion was held in the woods on the farm where Melvin Bryant's lived.- now owned by Clifford Eller - 3 1/2 miles east of Arcadia, Indiana. The Third Eller reunion was held at the home of Charles Eller, south of Tipton, Indiana. The Fourth Eller Reunion was held at the home of William Eller, 3 mi. east and 1/2 mile south of Atlanta, Indiana. It was getting to be too much of a task to have these reunions in the homes.
